A warrant issued for a Florida man says he came to Minnesota and sold more than $3,000 in fake hockey tickets for a Wild playoff game, WCCO reports.

Michael Nottrodt has been charged but is not in custody, the station says.

According to the Star Tribune, the criminal complaint against Nottrodt says he sold 23 bogus tickets to the Wild's April 22 game against the St. Louis Blues, arranging the sales on Craigslist and meeting the buyers at various locations in the Twin Cities area.

Nottrodt has previous convictions for theft and forgery in Ohio, the Star Tribune says.

Even before that playoff game, police and the Wild had been alerting fans to a surge in sales of fake tickets and providing tips on how to avoid getting scammed (Tip #1: buy from the box office or Ticketmaster, not Craigslist).

Police arrested a suspect whom authorities believe duped 40 victims before that April 22nd game.
